Broadcom has come a long way in its commitment to reduce climate change and that change is now being recognized on the global stage. This week, Broadcom was included in Newsweek’s Top Ten rankings of the world’s most sustainable companies. For 2015, Broadcom is ranked as the No. 4 greenest company in the U.S. and No. 8 globally on the prestigious 2015 Newsweek Green Rankings.
It’s an impressive rise for Broadcom, which first landed on the list in 2009 and broke the Top 100 among U.S companies in 2014 with the No. 80 spot, up from No. 376 in 2012. (Newsweek did not publish a list in 2013).
Over the years, Broadcom has improved its performance across green sustainability indicators, such as reductions in site-level energy, water, waste and greenhouse gas emissions. The company has continually strived to enhance its strategic approach to minimizing the environmental impact of its business.
The Newsweek Green Rankings are one of the world’s most recognized assessments of corporate environmental performance. Based on research from Corporate Knights Capital, along with a “Green Revenue” score powered by HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor Inc., the 2015 iteration of the project features eight indicators that are used to assess and measure the environmental performance of the world’s largest publicly traded companies including energy productivity, greenhouse gas (GHG) productivity, water productivity, waste productivity, green revenue score, green pay link, a sustainability board committee and audited environmental metrics.
The list looks at the corporate sustainability and environmental impact practices at the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the U.S. and around the world.
